In Summer 2022 the Sandcastle is open 4 June – 28 August, daily 10-21

The Sandcastle has charmed visitors more than eighteen times since 2004. Themes have changed every year, and millions of kilos of sand are used to carve this magnificent Sandcastle. There will be a cosy oasis for the whole family with a new pop-up theme park complex with bouncing castles next summer. The Sandcastle in 2022 will be more active than ever, and it will be built around the Finnish nature. The Sandcastle is the starting point and terminus of the street train.
